Last night at ACMi, we hosted the Arlington Drupal Self Help Group for their first meet up in their new location, our studio.

In honor of our new offering, we are spolighting Drupal in this week’s Resource Friday.

Drupal is an open source content management system similar to WordPress, but at the same time very different. Drupal can scale up to incredible large-scale solutions for a social networking website, or opperate for an individual user as a blog. Also like WordPress, Drupal has Themes and plugins (called Modules).

Drupal is a little complex for beginners, but with the advancement of Drupal Profiles, users can install all the components they need for their website, out of the box. Also, Drupal is widely supported and has an active community, incluing a prolific Boston branch.
